Androgynous Union of Form
In my collaborative artwork with Daniel Berry we created body prints of both masculine and feminine forms in a symbolic use of blue and yellow acrylic paint on paper. The formal qualities of this piece display a versatile coming together of two human forms that combine in a seamless merger of active and passive dualities in which no particular form takes over the other, symbolic of the dissolution of imbalance alchemically and erotically. In a joint artist statement by myself and Jodie we noted that:
By painting directly on to the naked male and female bodies and printing them on to paper, we sought to explore the sensuality and intimacy of the subject matter and printing method.

My first piece was inspired by the black sheep feminist artists from the 1970’s The theme of the female body is a continuous project for me to enhance and create a vision to allow the female body to be seen in another form other than traditional portraits or photographs. I wanted to show a connection between the work and myself as the artists, showing intimacy and purity. The colours used are to show the power and to also show delicacy. This enables a very sensual piece of work. I am inspired by artists such as Pierre Schmidt, Tracey Emin, and Yves Klein.
